    Tukhugov received 2 year ban and he was caught in November of 2016 and his sample with banned stuff was taken in the end of October of 2016, so he is not gonna be cleared to fight.
    I think Oleynik and Shamil trains with each other. Or at least they trained when both were living/training in Moscow.

    I can assure you thats not true. I think we're not even planning on bidding for the WC for the foreseeable future because no ones heart is really in it.

    I guess Aleksandra Albu will get on the card. If Instagram isn't keeping her too busy, that is.

    Russia was kicked out of the Olympics. No legitimate sport entity should ever bring an event there.

    Didn’t Volkov say he was going to sit out until a title shot?

    Their suspension ends Sept 26, so your point stands.

    That's the smart decision from a business standpoint, so not sure what's funny about it. I can't believe people thought UFC would go to Russia with a PPV without testing the market tbh.

    Volkov said that he wants one more fight before the title shot and he also said that fans writes to him that he should just wait for the title shot.

    I was thinking here and should Blaydes win by finish, he's on a 6 win streak with 4 finishes, just as Volkov. The level of competition it's pretty much the same.

    - Blaydes / Volkov wins:
    • Overeem / Werdum
    • Hunt / Struve
    • Oleynik / Nelson
    • Omielańczuk / Johnson
    • Milstead / Vegh
    • East / Smoldarev
    The difference being that Volkov will be the one much more inactive. Therefore, Volkov shouldn't get a titleshot yet. The winner of Overeem/Blaydes should fight him in that main event, then we will have a incontestable contender. Other option, to keep Miocic active if he finishes DC easily, would be a titleshot to Blaydes and make Volkov fight Cain.

    What's the story with Albu? I see she was born in Moldova and is a Moldovan citizen but she's fighting out of Moscow, uses Russian in social media and is seemingly intent on getting Russian citizenship. Do you know her ethnicity, Moldovan, Russian, Gagauz?

    Read some history, "moldavian" does not exist. Its like saying northern irish are a different ethnicity from southern irish. "Moldovans" are Romanians (see Cutelaba from LHW). He is hired in Russia, this is why she is using Russian, its normal.
